Vacuum therapy was originally developed to treat scarring from burns, and it originated from cupping therapy—an ancient Chinese medicine treatment that uses heated cups to create suction on the skin to increase blood flow to a specific area of the body. During these treatments, it was also noticed that vacuum therapy reduced the appearance of cellulite.
At Body thief, we use vacuum therapy for butt lifting and lymphatic drainage and clearing.
Because vacuum therapy is a noninvasive, or nonsurgical, procedure, there are minimal negative side effects. It does not typically cause pain, although you might have momentary discomfort when the suction is first started or turned off.
Your skin might also feel "tight" or "tingly," or look a little puffy immediately after treatment, but this is temporary. Vacuum therapy can also cause temporary redness in the affected area, but it doesn't usually cause bruising.
During a vacuum butt lift session, after prepping the area using our unique method of sculpting, large cups are placed on the glutes. The suction machine is then turned on and adjusted to a level that is comfortable for you. The suction cups are clear to allow your technician to see how your skin is responding to treatment.
Treatment times vary but generally last around 30–45 minutes. After your session, you'll be encouraged to drink a lot of water to help flush toxins out of your body. There's no required "downtime" after treatment, but if you experience discomfort, it might also be helpful to rest until the side effects have subsided and avoid exercise until the following day.
Initial treatments are performed one or two times per week, for a total of six to 10 sessions. After this point, monthly sessions are recommended to help maintain your results.
Vacuum therapy does not work for everyone. When it does, it produces temporary results—and they will not be as drastic as a surgical butt lift. Plan to invest in six to eight treatments to determine what your results will be. However, even with this investment, vacuum therapy is still significantly cheaper than surgical methods of butt enhancement.
Vacuum butt lift uses suction and mechanical massage to "lift" your buttocks and improve the overall appearance of your skin. Vacuum therapy is non-invasive, with minimal side effects. Treatment sessions typically last 30–45 minutes, once or twice a week. The best results usually require around six to 10 sessions. Monthly treatments are necessary to maintain results of a vacuum butt lift.
